  1. What do you need to do today?

    BTW, more on that Les Paul Eric gave George, when George saw that red color, he thought of Lucille Ball's red hair and named the guitar "Lucy".

    I have 1 Gibson Les Paul, it's a gold top with a 490 humbucker in the neck position and a 498 humbucker in the bridge position. I was never a Gibson fan, except for the acoustic Hummingbirds, Doves and SJ200's. My brother plays guitars and has a cherryburst Les Paul he bought new that is around a 1968 to 1970. I think it's a "Deluxe" model, not sure. But he loves it and claims it's the best guitar he ever bought and always told me some day you have to buy a Gibson Les Paul. I wanted to get a cherry red Les Paul like George Harrison's, but my gold top came up at the right price and I bought it. Later I found out that George's was originally a gold top bought new by John Sabastian of "The Lovin' Spoonful" and he abused it pretty good. One night on tour, John Sebastian's amp blew up and to continue the show and tour he traded that guitar to the guitarist for his opening act for an amp. That guitarist was Rick Derringer that was playing in "The McCoy's" opening for "The Lovin' Spoonful. The guitar was pretty beat up and Rick decided to have it taken apart and redone with a new paint job that was red like the new Gibson SG models at that time. When the guitar was done he picked it up and didn't like it, it didn't sound right, didn't play right and a few days later he sold it to Dan Armstrong's Music Shop in NYC when they got to NYC for a show. 4 days later, Eric Clapton walked into the shop and picked up the guitar and loved it, and he bought it. Sometime later in 1968 George Harrison invited Eric to Abbey Road Studio's to play lead on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" for "The White Album", and Eric brought the red Les Paul. When the session was over he gave that guitar to George. The Harrison estate still has it. That red Les Paul and it's history is probably the only reason I have a Les Paul today. Sorry I was so long winded, but I think everyone should know the history of that guitar.

    just looking around to buy more stuff. A while back I bought a Gibson Les Paul goldtop, but I really liked an Epi cherry 100th anniversary model that I passed by for the Gibson. I never forgot that Epi and I'm thinking of buying it today before they are gone. What do you think of this guitar? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ENA5CHGH/sn17031509365

    Drums are sitting in the corner of the living room, I'm still deciding on hardware and cymbals. I already have 2 set of drums, so I have hardware and cymbals, but I think I'd like to upgrade to new cymbals and hardware so all 3 sets can be set up at the same time. I'm definitely buying A. Zildjian cymbals, just have to go out and try sizes and weights for the sounds I want and decide on regular or brilliant finish. I'm leaning towards Gibraltar heavy duty hardware at the moment, I'll have to go out and look around before ordering them too. After shopping around, I'll most likely order everything from Sweetwater Music, they do a fantastic job and have what you order at your door the next day. Gonna try to post a picture or two of the drums in the corner of the L/R. Hope it works!
